Getting Started

Battery Safety
To install, charge and/or do any other action on the battery, follow the instructions in this
manual.
Before installing the Battery, read Battery Safety on this and the following pages. Datalogic recommends annual replacement of rechargeable battery packs to ensure maximum performance.

NOTE

WARNING

Do not discharge the battery using any device except for the scanner. When the battery is used in
devices other than the designated product, it may damage the battery or reduce its life expectancy. If the device causes an abnormal current to flow, it may cause the battery to become hot,
explode or ignite and cause serious injury.
Lithium-ion battery packs may get hot, explode or ignite and cause serious injury if exposed to
abusive conditions. Be sure to follow the safety warnings listed below:

Do not place the battery pack in fire or heat.

Do not connect the positive terminal and negative terminal of the battery pack to each other
with any metal object (such as wire).

Do not carry or store the battery pack together with metal objects.

Do not pierce the battery pack with nails, strike it with a hammer, step on it or otherwise subject it to strong impacts or shocks.

Do not solder directly onto the battery pack.

Do not expose the battery pack to liquids, or allow the battery to get wet.

Do not apply voltages to the battery pack contacts.


In the event the battery pack leaks and the fluid gets into your eye, do not rub the eye. Rinse well
with water and immediately seek medical care. If left untreated, the battery fluid could cause
damage to the eye.

14

Gryphon I GD4100/GM4100

Setting Up the Reader


Always charge the battery at 32 104F (0 - 40C) temperature range.

CAUTION

Use only the authorized power supplies, battery pack, chargers, and docks supplied by your Datalogic reseller. The use of any other power supplies can damage the device and void your warranty.
Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery contains safety and protection devices,
which, if damaged, may cause the battery to generate heat, explode or ignite.
Do not place the battery in or near fire, on stoves or other high temperature locations.
Do not place the battery in direct sunlight, or use or store the battery inside cars in hot weather.
Doing so may cause the battery to generate heat, explode or ignite. Using the battery in this manner may also result in a loss of performance and a shortened life expectancy.
Do not place the battery in microwave ovens, high-pressure containers or on induction cookware.
Immediately discontinue use of the battery if, while using, charging or storing the battery, the battery emits an unusual smell, feels hot, changes color or shape, or appears abnormal in any other
way.
Do not replace the battery pack when the device is turned on.
Do not remove or damage the battery packs label.
Do not use the battery pack if it is damaged in any part.
Battery pack usage by children should be supervised.

As with other types of batteries, Lithium-Ion (LI) batteries will lose capacity over time. Capacity
deterioration is noticeable after one year of service whether the battery is in use or not. It is
difficult to precisely predict the finite life of a LI battery, but cell manufacturers rate them at
500 charge cycles. In other words, the batteries should be expected to take 500 full discharge /
charge cycles before needing replacement. This number is higher if partial discharging /
recharging is adhered to rather than full / deep discharging,
The typical manufacturer advertised useful life of LI batteries is one to three years, depending
on usage and number of charges, etc., after which they should be removed from service,
especially in mission critical applications. Do not continue to use a battery that is showing
excessive loss of capacity, it should be properly recycled / disposed of and replaced. For most
applications, batteries should be replaced after one year of service to maintain customer
satisfaction and minimize safety concerns.
Collect and recycle waste batteries separately from the device in compliance with European
Directive 2006/66/EC, 2002/95/EC, 2002/96/EC and subsequent modifications, US and
China regulatory and others laws and regulations about the environment.

The base contains a button, which is used primarily to perform a paging function. Pressing the
button causes a sound signal to be emitted by all scanners linked with this base, as long as the
scanner is awake (see "Powerdown Timeout" on page 164) and reception is enabled (see "Sleep
Mode Timeout" on page 37).
The button can also be used to "force device connection" via the Datalogic Aladdin Software
tool (available for free download from the Datalogic website). See Aladdin for details.

Programming
The reader is factory-configured with a set of default features standard. After scanning the
interface barcode from the Interfaces section, you can select other options and customize your
reader through use of the instructions and programming barcodes available in the
corresponding features section for your interface, and also the Data Editing and Symbologies
chapters of this manual.

Using the Programming Barcodes


This manual contains feature descriptions and barcodes which allow you to reconfigure your
reader. Some programming barcode labels, like the "Restore Custom Default Configuration"on
page 30, require only the scan of that single label to enact the change. Most of the programming
labels in this manual, however, require the reader to be placed in Programming Mode prior to
scanning them. Scan an ENTER/EXIT barcode once to enter Programming Mode. Once the
reader is in Programming Mode, you can scan a number of parameter settings before scanning
the ENTER/EXIT barcode a second time, which will then accept your changes, exit
Programming Mode and return the reader to normal operation.
There are some exceptions to the typical programming sequence described
above. Please read the description and setting instructions carefully when
configuring each programmable feature.

Scanning Features

Scanning Features
Scan Mode
Selects the scan operating mode for the reader. Selections are:
Trigger Single. When the trigger is pulled, scanning is activated until one of the following
occurs:
- Scanning Active Time has elapsed
- a label has been read
- the trigger is released
This mode is associated with typical handheld reader operation: when the trigger is pulled,
scanning starts and the product scans until the trigger is released, or a label is read, or the
maximum Scanning Active Time has elapsed.
Trigger Hold Multiple . When the trigger is pulled, scanning starts and the product scans until
the trigger is released or Scanning Active Time has elapsed. Reading a label does not disable
scanning. Double Read Timeout prevents undesired multiple reads of the same label while in
this mode.
Trigger Pulse Multiple. When the trigger is pulled, continuous scanning is activated until
Scanning Active Time has elapsed or the trigger has been released and pulled again. Double
Read Timeout1 prevents undesired multiple reads of the same label while in this mode.
Flashing. The reader flashes1 on and off regardless of the trigger status. Flash rate is controlled
by Flash On Time and Flash Off Time. When Flash is ON the imager reads continuously; when
Flash is OFF scanning is deactivated.
Always On. No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is continually on. If the
trigger is pulled, the reader acts as if it is in Trigger Single Mode. Double Read Timeout1
prevents undesired multiple reads of the same label while in this mode.
Stand Mode. No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is turned on automatically
when an item is placed in the readers field of view. If the trigger is pulled, the reader acts as if it
in single read mode. Double Read Timeout1 prevents undesired multiple reads while in this
mode.
Trigger Object Sense. This mode is similar to Stand Mode, except that a trigger pull is required
to activate the decoder.

Intercharacter Delay
This parameter specifies the intercharacter delay between the end of one character and the
beginning of the next. The delay can be set within a range of zero (0) to 990 milliseconds in
10ms increments. A setting of zero specifies no delay.
To set the delay:
1. Determine the desired setting in milliseconds.
2. Divide the desired setting by 10 (setting is in 10ms increments). Pad the result with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20, etc.
3. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
4. Scan the barcode: SELECT INTERCHARACTER DELAY SETTING.
5. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in Appendix E, Keypad, that represent
the duration which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL
barcode to abort and not save the entry string. You can then start
again at the beginning.

This parameter specifies the intercharacter delay between the end of one character and the
beginning of the next. The delay can be set within a range of zero (0) to 990 milliseconds in
10ms increments. A setting of zero specifies no delay.

This feature applies ONLY to the Keyboard Wedge interface.

NOTE
To set the delay:
1. Determine the desired setting in milliseconds.
2. Divide the desired setting by 10 (setting is in 10ms increments). Pad the result with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20, etc.
3. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
4. Scan the barcode: SELECT INTERCHARACTER DELAY SETTING.
5. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in Appendix E, Keypad, that represent
the duration which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL
barcode to abort and not save the entry string. You can then start
again at the beginning.

NOTE
6. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to exit Programming
Mode.
This completes the procedure. See Table 14 for some examples of how to set this feature.

Data Editing
Data Editing Overview
It is not recommended to use these features with IBM interfaces.

CAUTION
When a barcode is scanned, additional information can be sent to the host computer along with
the barcode data. This combination of barcode data and supplementary user-defined data is
called a message string. The features in this chapter can be used to build specific user-defined
data into a message string.
There are several types of selectable data characters that can be sent before and after scanned
data. You can specify if they should be sent with all symbologies, or only with specific
symbologies. Figure 16 shows the available elements you can add to a message string:

Data Editing

Please Keep In Mind...

Modifying a message string is not a mandatory requirement. Data editing is sophisticated


feature allowing highly customizable output for advanced users. Factory default settings
for data editing is typically set to NONE.
A prefix or suffix may be applied (reference the Symbologies chapter for these settings)
across all symbologies (set via the Global features in this chapter).
You can add any character from the ASCII Chart (from 00-FF) on the inside back cover of
this manual as a prefix, suffix or Label ID.
Enter prefixes and suffixes in the order in which you want them to appear on the output.

Global Prefix/Suffix
Up to 20 ASCII characters may be added as a prefix (in a position before the barcode data) and/
or as a suffix (in a position following the barcode data) as indicated in Figure 17.

Example: Setting a Prefix


In this example, well set a prefix for all symbologies.
1. Determine which ASCII character(s) are to be added to scanned barcode data. In this
example, well add a dollar sign ($) as a prefix.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
3. Scan the SET GLOBAL PREFIX barcode.
4. Reference the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual, to find the hex value
assigned to the desired character. The corresponding hex number for the $ character is
24. To enter this selection code, scan the 2 and 4 barcodes from Appendix E, Keypad.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL
barcode to abort and not save the entry string. You can then start
again at the beginning.

NOTE
5. If less than the expected string of 20 characters are selected, scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode to terminate the string.

Label ID

Label ID
A Label ID is a customizable code of up to three ASCII characters (each can be one of hex 0x010xFF), used to identify a barcode (symbology) type. It can be appended previous to or following
the transmitted barcode data depending upon how this option is enabled. This feature provides
options for configuring custom Label IDs as a pre-loaded set (see "Label ID: Pre-loaded Sets"
below) or individually per symbology (see "Label ID: Set Individually Per Symbology"on
page 137). If you wish to program the reader to always include an industry standard label
identifier for ALL symbology types, see the previous feature "Global AIM ID"on page 132.

Label ID: Pre-loaded Sets


The reader supports two pre-loaded sets of Label IDs. Table 17 shows the USA set and the EU
set.

CAUTION

When changing from one Label ID set to another, all other reader
configuration settings, including the host interface type, will be
erased and set to the standard factory defaults. Any custom configuration or custom defaults will be lost.

Label ID: Set Individually Per Symbology


To configure a Label ID individually for a single symbology:
1. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
2. Select Label ID position as either BEFORE (Enable as Prefix) or AFTER (Enable as suffix) by scanning the appropriate barcode in the section "Label ID Control"on page 140.
Reference Figure 19 for Label ID positioning options if multiple identification features are
enabled.
3. Scan a barcode to select the symbology for which you wish to configure a custom Label
ID from the section Label ID Symbology Selection, starting on page 141.
4. Determine the desired character(s) (you may choose up to three) which will represent the
Label ID for the selected symbology.
5. Turn to the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual and find the equivalent
hex digits associated with your choice of Label ID. For example, if you wish to select an
equal sign (=) as a Label ID, the chart indicates its associated hex characters as 3D. Turn to
Keypad, starting on page 407 and scan the barcodes representing the hex characters determined. For the example given, the characters 3 and D would be scanned. More examples of Label ID settings are provided in Table 18.
If you make a mistake before the last character, scan the CANCEL
barcode to abort and not save the entry string. You can then start
again at the beginning.

NOTE
6. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode to exit Label ID entry.
7. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode once again to exit Programming Mode.
This completes the steps to configure a Label ID for a given symbology.

Character Conversion
Character conversion is an eight byte configuration item. The eight bytes are 4 character pairs
represented in hexadecimal ASCII values. The first character in the pair is the character that will
be converted. The second character in the pair is the character to convert to. If the character to
convert in a pair is FF, then no conversion is done.
For example, if you have the character conversion configuration item set to the following:
41423132FFFFFFFF
The first pair is 4142 or AB (41 hex is an ASCII capital A, 42 hex is an ASCII capital B) and the
second pair is 3132 or 12 (31 hex is an ASCII 1, 32 is an ASCII 2). The other two pairs are
FFFF and FFFF.
With the label, AB12BA21, it would look as follows after the character
conversion: BB22BB22.
The A characters were converted to B characters and the 1 characters were converted to 2
characters. Nothing is done with the last two character pairs, since they are all FF.
To set Character Conversion:
1. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode.
2. Scan the Configure Character Conversion barcode.
3. Determine the desired string. Sixteen positions must be determined as in the above example. Next, turn to the ASCII Chart on the inside back cover of this manual and find the
equivalent hex digits needed to fulfill the string.
4. Turn to Appendix E, Keypad and scan the barcodes representing the hex characters determined in the previous step.
5. Scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode to exit Programming Mode.
If less than the expected string of 16 characters are selected,
scan the ENTER/EXIT barcode twice to accept the selections
and exit Programming Mode.

Configuration Update
Automatic Configuration Update
When this feature is enabled, a reader and its linked Base Station can automatically ensure they
stay in sync with regard to application hardware and/or configuration. This is accomplished by
the linked reader and Base Station comparing application version number and configuration file
check sum. If either is different, the Base Station will automatically update the reader with its
application/configuration.
If the units are linked, any changes made to the Base Station configuration through the scan
utility software will automatically be sent to the reader at the completion of the programming
session.
In the same way, any changes made to the linked readers configuration will also be transmitted
to the Base Station when the reader exits Programming Mode.
If Auto Configuration update is enabled, it can also be done when the reader is installed on its
base station.

UPC/EAN Global Settings


This section provides configuration settings for UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN 13 and EAN 8
symbologies, and affects all of these unless otherwise marked for each feature description.

UPC/EAN Decoding Level


Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

Code 39 Decoding Level


Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

This configuration item applies to Code 39 and Code 32.

Code 128 Decoding Level


Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

2 of 5 Decoding Level
This configuration item applies to Interleaved 2 of 5, Datalogic 2 of
5 and Standard 2 of 5.

NOTE
Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

is the maximum label length if in Variable Length Mode, or the second fixed length if in Fixed
Length Mode. Length includes the barcodes check, data, and full-ASCII shift characters. The
length does not include start/stop characters.
The length can be set from 1 to 50 characters. A setting of 0 specifies to ignore this length (only
one fixed length).
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired character length (from 1 to 50 or 0 to ignore this length). Pad
the number with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20,
etc.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
3. Scan the barcode: SELECT INDUSTRIAL 2 OF 5 LENGTH 2 SETTING.

Codabar Decoding Level


Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative, depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

Code 11 Decoding Level


Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode symbology decoder to be very aggressive to
very conservative depending on a particular customers needs.
Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being able to
read poorly printed or damaged labels.
Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior allows
decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing the likelihood
of decoding errors.
Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.
There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

Code 11 Character Correlation


When correlation is enabled, the barcode reader will combine label data from multiple scans
when decoding. Enabling correlation will help the scanner read labels that have some spots and/
or voids. It may also help read labels that have damaged areas. Enabling correlation will also
increase the chances that a label will be read incorrectly.

Plessey Set Length 2


This feature specifies one of the barcode lengths for Plessey Length Control. Length 2
is the maximum label length if in Variable Length Mode, or the second fixed length if in
Fixed Length Mode. Length includes the barcodes check, data, and full-ASCII shift
characters. The length does not include start/stop characters.
The length can be set from 1 to 50 characters. A setting of 0 specifies to ignore this length
(only one fixed length).
Follow these instructions to set this feature:
1. Determine the desired character length (from 1 to 50 or 0 to ignore this length). Pad
the number with leading zeroes to yield two digits. For example: 0 = 00, 5 = 05, 20 = 20,
etc.
2. Scan the ENTER/EXIT PROGRAMMING MODE barcode to enter Programming
Mode.
3. Scan the barcode: SELECT PLESSEY LENGTH 2 SETTING.
4. Scan the appropriate two digits from the keypad in the Keypad Appendix that represent
the length setting which was determined in the steps above. You will hear a two-beep indication after the last character.
If you make a mistake, before the last character scan the CANCEL barcode to
abort and not save the entry string. You can then start again at the beginning.

Plessey Decoding Level


Specifies the decoding level for Plessey. Decoding Levels are used to configure a barcode
symbology decoder to be very aggressive to very conservative depending on a particular
customers needs.

Choosing Level 1 results in a very conservative decoder at the expense of not being
able to read poorly printed or damaged labels.

Choosing Level 5 results in a very aggressive decoder. This aggressive behavior


allows decoding of poorly printed and damaged labels at the expense of increasing
the likelihood of decoding errors.

Choosing Level 3, which is the default setting, allows the majority of product labels to be
decoded.

There are many factors that determine when to change the decoding level for a particular
symbology. These factors include spots, voids, non-uniform bar/space widths, damaged labels,
etc. that may be experienced in some barcode labels. If there are many hard to read or damaged
labels that cannot be decoded using a conservative setting, increase the decoding level to be
more aggressive. If the majority of labels are very good quality labels, or there is a need to
decrease the possibility of a decoder error, lower the decoding level to a more conservative level.

Message Formatting
Message Formatting
Message Formatting is only available for the Gryphon Mobile
model.

NOTE
A message from the Host to the base must follow these rules:
If Address stamping options or address delimiter are enabled on the base, the Host replay
must have address field and delimiter too. Otherwise the message will be ignored. Address
delimiter is present only when address stamping is enabled.
Address stamping is necessary to correctly route the message to the Gryphon I, especially
when more than one handheld is linked to the same base. Address stamping could be disabled if the system is in point to point configuration. If address stamping is not enabled,
the messages are addressed to the first handheld linked to the base.
Messages end with CR 0x0D ASCII character. The CR character cannot be contained
in the middle.
Messages cannot start with '$' or # because these are reserved for Service mode command
Base station can receive host message only if Host Commands Obey/Ignore is set to
Ignore.
Message could be sent to the HH in response to a Label when Transmit mode require
Ack from Host (see transmit mode parameter) or at any time. When messages are sent not
in response to a label must start with DC2 0x12 ASCII character and could be sent in any
transmit mode setting.
Message could be sent to all HH linked to base by using a Multicast message:
00 00 00 00 2A AA
In order to receive a message, handhelds must not be in sleep state.
The format of the ACK from Host message (used for transmission mode 02) is:
[Scanner_Addr] [Scanner_Addr_delimiter] MESSAGE <CR>
The format of a generic message From Host to HH is:
[Scanner_Addr] [Scanner_Addr_delimiter] DC2 MESSAGE <CR>
where DC2 is ASCII 0x12 (^R) character.
[Items in square brackets are optional.]

If you want to control the Scanner's beeper from the host, you will also probably want to
disable the good transmission beep that is emitted when the code is received from the cradle. (See RF Beeper Features on page 154).

The message field can store plain text and escape sequences.
Escape sequences are interpreted as commands.
Plain text is directly printed on the display. If writing beyond the end of line, the display
does not wrap automatically. Extra characters are ignored. Control characters are not
interpreted (i.e. LF, FF, etc.).

NOTES:

Since CR is used as the message terminator, you must use ESC [ G or ESC E to print a
CR.
The cursor row position is not affected by the currently selected font. The display always
has 4 rows, so when writing with the large font, actually two rows are written to: the current one and the one below it. You will need two ESC E commands to step from one row
to the next when using the large font.
The cursor column position is affected by the currently selected font. Therefore, column
6 is 36 pixels from the left border only if you last selected the 6x8 font; otherwise it could
be 48 or 72 pixels from the left border.

Messages from Scanner Command Keys


The Gryphon I series scanners with display have 3 command keys that can each be associated
with a character to send to the host.
By pressing the keys on the scanner, the associated character with its relative message formatting
is sent to the Host. For example, keys can be used to select items from a menu sent to the
scanner display by the application program.
The messages are handled by the system as if they were barcodes, that's why KeyID can have so
many fields appended to it. If in your application there is some chance of reading a 1-char
barcode identical to KeyID, the way you can distinguish between the two is to enable the Code
ID: The KeyID is the only 1-character long EAN 8 code.
The default characters associated with each key (KeyID) are shown in the following table:

Appendix F
Scancode Tables
Control Character Emulation
Control character emulation selects from different scancode tables as listed in this appendix.
Each of the control character sets below are detailed by interface type in the tables. These apply
to Wedge and USB Keyboard platforms.
Control Character 00 . Characters from 00 to 0x1F are sent as control character Ctrl+Keys,
special keys are located from 0x80 to 0xA1.
Control Character 01 . Characters from 00 to 0x1F are sent as control character Ctrl+Capital
Key, special keys are located from 0x80 to 0xA1.
Control Character 02 . Special keys are located from 00 to 0x1F and characters from 0x80 to
0xFE are intended as an extended ASCII table (Microsoft Windows Codepage 1252 See
page -420.)

Single Press and Release Keys


In the following tables, Ar means Alt right pressed and Ar means Alt right released and so on.
Definitions for other keys are Al (Alt left ), Cr (Control Right ) Cl (Control Left ) Sh (shift).
This method can be used for combining Alt, Control or Shift with other keys.
Example: Consider a Control character set to 00. If AltRight+A is required before sending a
label to the host, it could be done by setting three Prefix keys in this way: 0x99 0x41 0x9A.
